'We shall miss him'

The new parliamentary session opened Monday in Ottawa with a tribute to Jack Layton.

“Day after day he fought for the little guy.”
- Nycole Turmel, New Democrat Interim Leader.

“It’s hard to believe he isn’t still there.”
- Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

“As an adversary and as a friend, we shall miss him.”
- Bob Ray, Interim Liberal Leader.

“He could tear a strip off you, but when you left the House you still felt like shaking his hand.”
- Louis Plamondon, Bloc Québécois Acting House Leader.

"The chalk at City Hall has worn away, but the messages will be with me forever."
- Olivia Chow.
